1989 Pickup Color
I have a couple 1989 Ibanez's in my collection, and compared to the Ibanez I own these two are unique in that they have gray pickups (the others have black). I've seen first hand gray IBZ single coil and humbuckers (F1, F2, F3 and C1...though i'm assuming they were all gray for a while). I've also seen these same pickups on different year guitars and they are black. How long did they use gray pickups? Was this something unique to 1989? If so do all '89 guitars have gray pickups or just a subset of them made during a certain time period?
